Country of Residence: France
Primary Language: Italian
Other Languages: English, French
Field of Mediation: Commercial, Community, Environmental, Governmental, International, Intercultural, Labor
I have solid experience in the international governmental and non-governmental arena. I have worked on education and labor market policies with the OECD and the European Commission focusing on diversity, inclusion and environmental sustainability. I managed humanitarian and development projects for Italian and international NGOs, with experiences in rural Tanzania and refugee camps in Europe. I also developed a solid knowledge of for-profit social enterprises while collaborating as an impact evaluation consultant with an accelerator of startups in sub-Saharan Africa. I hold a Master’s degree in International Development from Sciences Po and a Bachelor’s degree in International Politics and Government from Bocconi University.
I was born and raised in Italy, and I pursued my education between Italy, Canada, France and the United States. Professionally, I also experienced diverse environments. From refugee camps to the headquarters of international organizations, I practiced the power of communication in our society. This pushed me to learn to communicate better and ultimately help others do so. I have collaborated with international organizations, startups, governments and non-profit organizations. This gives me a flexible mindset to understand conflict dynamics in different contexts. In my work, I also explored the role that social and emotional learning, biases and stereotypes play from education to the workplace. This makes me confident that I will be able to facilitate your communication consciously.

Field of Mediation: International
In 2019 I attended a two-week program on ADR in Berlin, deemed to satisfy the basic mediation training requirements for court appointment as a mediator pursuant to many American states' statutory and court rule standards. Since 2020 I collaborate with ADRpoint one of the largest private mediation centers in Europe registered in the ODR platform of the European Commission. Since 2020 I am a volunteer for International Academy of Dispute Resolution. In 2021 while being a Trainee Lawyer, I qualified as mediator under current italian legislation. Thanks to all the above I gained experience with different types of mediation: ODR and consumers’ rights, family mediation when minors are involved, intercultural mediation and migrants’ rights, international transactions and commercial disputes.
Italian mediator, I enjoy using Italian, English and German to communicate with people from every walk of life. I have always fostered values of integrity, diversity, professionalism and worked to spread them around, while also raising awareness on the importance of people’s emotions.
I strive to create a community based on all the above-mentioned values and, as Mediation and the environment where I grew up have taught me, where the people are more empathetic towards one another.
I can help clients facing difficulties in communication; that need to overcome language barriers with other parties such as commercial partners, relatives, or the administrative system; in tense situation where legal breaches happened; when they seek rationality and calm.
